SAN DIEGO -- On the year of its 30th anniversary, Hillcrest's Crest Cafe is getting a lot of attention. Not only did the popular diner install an already iconic mural on a vacant outside wall, it has received recognition from customers, the media and San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria.
The cafe, owned by longtime community activist Cecelia Moreno, recently received recognition in numerous categories as part of San Diego Uptown News' 2012 Reader's Choice Awards. Crest Cafe's honors include:
Best Late-Night Eating
Best Casual Dining
Best After-Hours Dining
Best Comfort Food
Best American Cuisine
Longtime Crest Cafe server Wade also received the "Silver Award" for Best Server.
"Thank you San Diego Uptown News readers for all of your support," wrote Crest Cafe in a post on Facebook. "It really just drives home the feeling of what it's been like to serve this community for 30 years."
Moreno also accepted a proclamation from the San Diego City Council at a recent Hillcrest Business Association (HBA) member mixer. The proclamation, which was presented to her by Gloria, recognized Crest Cafe's 30 years and status as an iconic San Diego restaurant, and staple in the Hillcrest community.
Crest Cafe is located at 425 Robinson Ave. and is open 7 days a week from 7 am to midnight.
